was your response on to the nra news conference that we saw just yesterday? >> well, richard, i thought it was stunningly insense i hativet is how i felt. the idea that the only approach to gun violence is gun fights is just not the way this country should, i think see itself. i know most americans don't see the wild, wild with west returning to the united states. but that is what they suggested. and the idea that they were making meaningful -- meaningful contributions, the only meaningful contribution i saw was to the gun manufacturers by way of free advertising. you know, they do what they have been doing a long time. that is come up with every excuse, except looking at the incredible saturation of guns in the society. and i saw statistics today of the 62 mass murders in the united states over the last 30 years, not one of them has been stopped by an armed civilian. and in columbine, there were two armed individuals that tried to stop it and couldn't. so, their answer has never been the answer and it's not the answer now. >> you are one of the few that is willing to make the ultimate
that favors gun ownership rights. republican louis gohmert of texas is an nra supporter. he says if more citizens had guns we would be safer, including the school principal murdered in newtown. >> i wish to god she had had an m-4 in her office looked up so when she heard gunfire she pulls it out and she doesn't have to lung heroically with nothing in her hands but she takes him out. >> flags at federal buildings and at nra headquarters are at half-staff but no comment from the nra telling cbs news there still aren't enough facts about the connecticut crime. fear of the lobby might be exaggerated but it does oppose almost any new regulations, political analyst norman ornstein. >> no member of congress no mat other how safe wants to have some group pouring millions of dollars in dedicated to smearing them or defeating them. >> reporter: we may see a test of strength between two washington power centers, a lobby, the nra and legislators who feel they've got to do something. dan raviv, cbs news at the capitol. >> jeff: still ahead on tonight's "cbs evening news", a warrant's worst fear not r
to the deadly shootings in newtown, connecticut and the nra's proposal to put armed police officers in every school in america. darcy spencer is joining us live near 14th street where a march is getting under way tonight. darcy? >> jim, i was able to speak to one of the organizers of this event this afternoon. he tells me when he was just two years old he witnessed his own mother being shot and killed. he says, in fact, the gunman turned the gun on him but fortunately it locked up and his life was spared. ever since then, he is an advocate for gun control. that's what this rally is about here this afternoon. the video we're going to show you was taken a few minutes ago as they were getting ready for this rally here in columbia heights. this is all about gun control. they're calling on congress, calling on the president to enact an assault weapons ban. they're calling for them again to take immediate action on this issue in light of the shootings in newtown, connecticut. we're going to hear from the gentleman i spoke about who lost his mother to gun violence and also we're going to hear from
on duty. he made the decision before the nra came out suggesting it, but while the mayor says it's necessary right now, new jersey governor chris christie says armed guards are not the solution. >> i don't think anyone heard me. i really thought he was going to attack me. i had visions that i was going to get eaten. >> that jogger had a frightening encounter with a mountain lion as she ran through colorado's cheyenne mountain park. they're hunting for the animal after it approached the jogger and another person in two separate incidents. rangers may have to kill the mountain lion to prevent it from threatening people at the park. >>> check out this video from boston where a police officer jumped into the frigid boston harbor to save a drowning woman. a bystander recorded the heroism with a cell phone. the woman said she fell in by accident. fire department divers helped them arrive both to safety. what an incredible task there. >>> for today's faces of faith, we are talking about the face of forgiveness, and what it looks like during the holidays. one example is the pope. he made
and those kinds of things, when i talk to my republican colleagues in the senate who are pro nra in the last few days, they express that over and over again. but even a balanced approach to curbing gun violence may not be enough to sway house republicans. >> vice president's recommendations come forward we'll certainly take them into consideration. but at this point, i think our souls ought to be to think about those victims in this horrible tragedy. >> eliot: but if you think national republicans near total silence over the past week is an indication their views have softened, you would be wrong. republican governors have shown that the g.o.p. still believes the answer to gun violence is more guns. >> if people were armed not just a police officer, but other school officials that were trained and chose to have a weapon, certainly there had been an opportunity to stop aggressors coming into the school. >> eliot: wow. joining me now is congressman joe courtney democrat of connecticut. welcome and thank you for j

say the nra uses money, power, scare tactics to hold lawmakers hostage to the agenda opposing gun regulations. i want to bring in richard painter and the law professor of minnesota and joining us from minneapolis who wrote an opinion piece, an op ed in "the new york times," and a protection racket where people are controlled by organized criminals, corrupt politicians. when you hear the head of the nra today say that gun laws are not the answer it really is arming people, arming somebody in that school that could have saved lives, what is your response? >> well, we -- of course, should focus on mental health issues. we should have fewer violent movies and video games and have better security in our schools, but nothing is going to change the fact that the last thing those children saw if they looked up, and i hope they didn't, is the end of a weapon manufactured by his financial backers. lapierre says if one of those teachers had a weapon they could have killed the gunman and could have saved lives and that was the potential outcome had there been someone armed in that school. >>
shawn. >> i'm jamie colby. we're glad you're here. the nra plan coming on the heels of the tragedy in newtown, connecticut. the deadliest mass shooting in a grade school in american history where the gunman armed with semi-automatic rifles made his way into the school with handguns as well. he killed 20 children and six adults before turning the gun on himself. peter doocy is live in washington with the latest on the question of guns and guards in is schools. >> the consultant leading the nra's effort to secure the schools is asa hutchinson, a former republican congressman from arkansas who said he didn't think new laws and prohibition is the right way to respond to what happened in sandy hook and compared the nra plan to put a trained guard in every american school to the federal air marshal program put in place after 9/11. >> more sensitive that be airplanes. people resisted having weapons on airplanes but i oversaw the federal air marshals and it's a deterrent, no one sees that weapon but they're protected on the airplane and it's a positive impact on safety. schools are a sensi

statement since the massacre. james rosen live in washington with that. james? >> good evening. the nra broke its silence a few hours after fox news reported exclusively that the gun advocacy group was soon going to begin, quote, pushing back against the gun control lobby which has been quite vocal since newtown. the nra statement promised to hold a major news conference this friday. the national rifle association of america, the statement said, is made up of 4 million moms and dads, sons and daughters and we were shocked, saddened and heart broken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in newtown. the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. around senator feinstein, the democrat who proposes to ban more than 100 kinds of firearms, the nra is preparing to draw red lines, a key provision in the feinstein bill would limit the number of rounds that could be loaded into semiautomatic weapons. and industry sources say that would prove very expensive to gun manufacturers. senator manchin, the gun friendly democrat from virginia
slamming the nra calling the group's leader a gun nut and politicians divided along party lines with the thought of more guns in schools. >> i do not believe that those remarks represent anywhere near a significant portion of america. >> school safety is a complex issue with no simple no single solution but i believe trained, armed security is one key component among many that can provide the first line of difference as well as the last line of defense. >> reporter: the debate over semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines has raged since the shooting at sandy hook. a gallup poll found 53% agreed increasing police presence in schools would be very effective. a third said somewhat effective, 12% said not effective and 42% said banning the sale of automatic weapons and nor an third, 36% said it would not be effective. feel free to weigh in on my page at rick levanthol over the debate of gun rights and greater restrictions continues. >> heather: rick, thank you. >> gregg: search for justice in the benghazi, libya terror attacks. a scathing report placing blame squarely for

. the nra for instance, they represent all gun owners and second amendment believers but not everyone has to pay the nra. nra is still in existence because they do a good job. melissa: mark, what about that? does that mean union workers to prove their worth? >> i think unions fight for workers every day. there is plenty more we can be doing. i've been a vocal critic my entire career in the labor movement people who lay back, don't do enough. making too much in terms of officers salaries or cutting deals with bosses. i certainly believe we need to do better. this is not in any way something to celebrate. this is further tilting playing field in favor of corporations, taking rights away from working people. i disagree with vinnie. nra you can join it or not tell it. your boss isn't telling you in who uncertain terms he prefer if you not and your job might be in jeopardy if you do. melissa: how do you know that is what is going to go on here? unions are well-established. in many -- >> it is multibillion-dollar inindustry, come on, you know this. melissa: they're are already working the shops
of the nra, standing by his comments about preventing similar mass curse. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. i will tell you what the american people, i think the american people think it is crazy not to do it. it is not going to make any kids safer. we have to get to the real problem, the real causes and that's what the nra is trying to do. there are so many different ways to evade that if you had that. you had that for 10 years when dianne feinstein passed the ban in '94. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i think that is phony piece of legislation and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it is all built on lies that have been found out. heather: gun control advocates equally adamant about their position. here's democratic senator charles schumer. >> he was so extreme and so tone deaf, not even saying that guns had any part of the problem. that he actually probably helped us as we tried to pass sensible gun legislation in the congress. now he

and marketers of guns and ammunition. it is a sister organization to the better known nra which represents the interests of gun owners. the nra advocates on behalf of the customers and the nssf on behalf of the manufacturers. of course, their interests intersect on many issues, and the upper hand in hand on many issues. what was striking to me is the nssf is based in this placid exurbs of new york, the san with the nra is based in the bucolic confines of fairfax, virginia. i don't think there's anything particularly remarkable about the geographic proximity between shooting tragedy beyond the fact that it shows us that guns really are normal and routine part of american life. it is not hold up in some castle behind barbed wire and machine guns, but in the building you might think is a medical professional building up on a hill that looks very innocuous. guns are not exceptional in the united states, they are the norm. >> put them in the context globally. compare canada, germany, australia. where do we stand when it comes to gun deaths in america? >> our gun homicide rates is greater by ord

square, wall street, and broadway theaters. >>> the nra says it's willing to offer meaningful contributions to ensure shootings like those in newtown never happen again. the gun rights group said it had been silent until now out of respect for the families. a major investment firm announced it's selling the biggest maker of the assault rifle. people see it as a step toward making assault rifles tabu. >> at the end of the day it's not necessarily the dollar that counts but the sense. the sense of the types of weapons we're selling to the general public. >> we'll hear more details about the nra's position at a news conference on friday. >> considering the mood of the nation, you have to wonder -- they have to pick their words very carefully during that news conference. they said nothing up to this point. even their facebook page had been taken down. so it's going to be interesting to see what those folks have to say at the end of the week. >>> also, in newtown, friends and family are preparing to say goodbye to first grade teacher vicki soto, one of those hero teachers. her fune
